Future State Validation - News Update

Updated - 30th September 2015

The Maternal & Newborn Clinical Management (MN-CMS) Future State Validation (FSV) was held during the week 21st - 25th September 2015 in the Hilton Hotel, Kilmainham, Dublin.

The objective of the FSV was for the MN-CMS National Project Team and work stream members to present the system and workflows as has been developed to date. It was also an opportunity for attendees to get some hands on use of the system and gain an understanding of how it will work within their hospital.

The event commenced with opening addresses from Helen Byrne, Chair of the MN-CMS project board, Richard Corbridge HSE Chief Information Officer and Dr Michael Robson, MN-CMS Project Clinical Director. The opening session was chaired by Professor Richard Greene, National Project Team.

There was a large turnout for day one of the event with the presenters providing a system demonstration entitled “Day in the Life”. Day two to day five comprised of breakout sessions with various scenarios been demonstrated to the specific work streams.

Over the course of the five days, attendees were encouraged to tell us their thoughts by posting comments on the “Feedback Wall” at the event. The feedback from those who attended was that they found the event informative and thought provoking. There was a sense of excitement about the system with attendees asking “when it will be deployed to my hospital”.

After a very successful week the main focus of the current phase of the project switches from the build and design to Testing, Training, Change / Adoption and the deployment of the system at the four core sites.

The remaining 15 maternity units who will form part of subsequent phased roll outs now need to consider resourcing their own LIT so they are prepared to fully realise the benefits offered by the MN-CMS.

The NPT look forward to working with all hospitals on the implementation of the new Electronic Health Record (EHR) for all women and babies in maternity services in Ireland.
